LOL, Willow, I'm the spa woman with the cloth... it's my solace, I'm good with it... thank goodness for it... the mirror wouldn't work for me, the peripheal of that tube just sends me shrieking! Isn't it how great how different we all are but how unreal the disease is equally different for all of us? I keep that foremost in my head cos though our symptoms may get "similar" it's always different for us all.
Gooster, do not read into more symptoms...honestly... I started lurking here before I got my dx cos a dear friend of mine recommended this great place... and it did have so much solace that it wasn't just my Imagination... but I didn't read up on all the ins and out of MS on purpose because I wanted my body to unravel itself to the doc and the neuro to earn his keep so to speak ... and yep, in my pissy mooded visit with him that brought about the dx because my right eye was full blown ON at the time, I told him that in my frustration that I was being EXTRA good and NOT pre-studying this disease even though he'd already mentioned it several times to me! He always smiles at me when I get like that... he's so good at realizing the frustratiions of this disease. So be good to you, log the symptoms, keep them in front of your doctor, make him/her work on it, keep the journal front and center to track it all and no matter how minor the thing is, NOTE IT. That's what I've learned.
Good to have ya here, good to chat with you and hope the sedatives help your future MRI's. Don't let them make you feel bad for not making their job easy. :)
